Maryland basketball has a good and potential rising star in Freshman Guard Daryll Morsell.
Maryland basketball’s Daryll Morsell was named Big Ten Player of the Week heading into the Maryland Terrapins (5-0) matchup with Jackson State Tigers (1-3) and that has to make Maryland basketball fans very happy. Is this only the beginning of a productive career for the freshman?
The former Mount Saint Joseph guard and Capital Classic standout has done some impressive things early in the season for the Terps. Even though, Morsell hasn’t gone up against Big Ten competition yet, The Terps faced some tough competition in the Butler Bulldogs (79-65 win) and Bucknell Bison (80-78 win). Morsell has scored 10 or more points in three out of five games he has played this season.
He is a very nice addition to this Maryland Terrapins team and a compliment to fellow Freshman Forward Bruno Fernando. Hopefully, they will be able to carry the load as young players and mature in their first season. Being around more experienced players on the roster will help them grow.
As for Daryll Morsell and his potential, he could be a great player for the Terps if he stays healthy and remains consistent. Obviously, he’s going to have off games during his career because no college basketball player is perfect but Morsell is a special talent. Just look at the performance he had against Bucknell, he scored 12 of his 15 points in the second half of that game bringing Maryland back while they were down 15 points at one point.
UPDATE: Morsell went down in the first half with a hamstring injury in Maryland’s 76-45 win against Jackson State Monday. Hopefully, the injury isn’t serious and it won’t derail the momentum he was starting to build.
